It is really better to chop woods rather than burn it because when we burn woods we are depriving ourselves of the use of the full carbon sink effect potential which reduces CO2 in the atmosphere and helps reducing the impact of global warming. By the way, in chopping woods we should always remember that if we chop wood, we should be able to replace them so that there will be a replacement to the wood that you cut. So that there will be more trees in our environment because it absorb carbon dioxide (CO2), store carbon and produce oxygen (O2) via photosynthesis. Young trees and growing forests bind carbon most efficiently. Multi-purpose forests – like the Nordic forests - are both suitable and used for recreational purposes. No amount of short term loans can replace the use of the trees. So we should always save them.
